Kyle Grady Memorial Fund

The Kyle Grady Memorial Fund .

Kyle was an amazing young man with a bright future.  The only child of June and Keith Grady, he faced many challenges in his young life.  Kyle was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma at seven months old.  He had one eye removed and underwent several rounds of chemo and radiation.  Despite being left legally blind, Kyle had an amazing attitude and approached life with great enthusiasm.  He never wanted pity or to be treated differently. He excelled at Lake Central High School, participated in the Lake Central Youth Basketball program, worked hard for many years to obtain a black belt in karate (earning three, first-place trophies), was captain of his high school chess team, and could solve a Rubik's Cube behind his back!  He had a love for music; starting out on piano, his greatest passion became guitar, and he had hopes of one day pursuing a career in the music industry.  More importantly, Kyle loved his friends and family passionately, had a very sweet nature, and had a hilarious sense of humor.  Tragically, in April, 2011, as Kyle was undergoing final exams during his first year away at Hope College, he was diagnosed with a sinus sarcoma.  He fought bravely for over a year; Kyle went to heaven in August, 2012.

Having limited vision, Kyle found the IPad to be a very useful device.  He also found great enjoyment playing guitar.  It is our hope to provide IPads and guitars to financially challenged young people with a cancer diagnosis or visual impairment.  We know Kyle would find this to be a worthwhile endeavor.

(Much of the funding for this fund was provided by Kyle's Bubba, his grandmother, Patti Wetlaufer, 12/10/38 - 4/13/17, who adored her only grandchild.)
